Just wondering if anyone can give me some advice as to how I find out exactly what service medals my Great Uncle would have been entitled to. He served in the AIF in the 2/2 pioneer battalion and never made it home to Australia after being taken a POW then meeting his death after the bombing of the Rakuyo Maru in 1944. I would like to get reproductions of his medals done and want to get it correct.
His name was Angus John Willard VX13211
Any help would be appreciated
Anne, If you go into Record Search- his records is already online - just type in his full name
I cant thank you enough, I already had a copy of Angus's records.....but when I went into the search it became evident that I had one page missing...the one that states what medals he was awarded. :)
Appreciate your help very much
Anne, You could try contacting the War memorial to see if they could help
Dear Anne Turner,
Please could you get in touch with me as I am writing a history of the 2/2nd Pioneers and it would be great to hear about Angus.
